Manny Khoshbin has marveled at Jeffree Star’s McLaren Senna in a new video ranking YouTubers’ cars, describing it as a “real one-off.”

Manny is a popular YouTuber and car collector with 1.5 million Instagram followers and more than 800,000 subscribers on YouTube.

As you’d expect, he has a wide array of cars in his garage, including multiple Bugatti’s, a few one-off Hermes editions, and classics from the likes of McLaren and Ferrari.

His extravagant collection of supercars is the envy of most YouTubers, but this time he had decided to judge cars owned by other major car influencers. In the video, he made observations about cars owned by TJ Hunt, Shmee150, Ms.Emelia, Dustin Williams, Garage Goals, Jeffree Star, and Daily Driven Exotics.

In his latest video, Manny paid special attention to Jeffree Star’s impressive track car and called it “one of the most beautiful looking Sennas I’ve seen.” He congratulated Jeffree on getting a “real one-off Senna,” admired the Tiffany blue color, and added: “I love the details all the way down to the wheel locks, the trims on the inside…it just really pops.”

The business mogul continued on: “It drives amazingly on the track, but on the street, especially for a long drive, it is a little bumpy.” However, Manny said that he prefers his McLaren P1, revealing that Jeffree had driven it himself in the past.

Jeffree Star recently bought a custom Toyota Supra from popular car enthusiast TheStradman, who documented the sale while also taking a look at the beauty influencer’s own incredible car collection. TheStradman also admired Jeffree’s Senna and considered purchasing one himself.

Manny went on to praise other popular car influencers including Shmee150 and TJ Hunt, calling Shmee’s 4GT a “pretty mean looking car” and praising the self-made body kit on TJ Hunt’s Toyota Supra.

Supercar Blondie mindblown by “insane” amphibious truck

As one of YouTube’s leading car content creators, Supercar Blondie gets to experience some of the craziest vehicles on the planet. Sometimes, a vehicle is just too much for her, though; as was the case with this incredible Russian Amphibious 8×8 truck.

With everything going on in the world at the moment, doomsday preppers are in full-on panic mode. Thankfully, YouTuber Supercar Blondie has found them the perfect go-anywhere, do-anything vehicle.

Dubbed the Avtoros ‘Shaman’ this gigantic truck is completely amphibious, so you can drive it on land or in water, and is custom-built by a team of Russian engineers. All eight wheels are driven, and can be controlled via the incredibly complex instrument panel in the cabin.

The Shaman has the capacity to carry up to eight people, and features a central driving position akin to that of the McLaren F1. Performance doesn’t quite match the aforementioned supercar though, being powered by a 4-cylinder diesel engine.

Blondie is quick to use her trademark “that’s crazy” statement, but in this case, it was definitely worthy of the phrase. The Shaman is unlike anything ever seen before on her channel, and she is clearly smitten with it.

Despite its exaggerated appearance making it look like it came straight from a Fast & Furious movie, she said the Shaman was “very normal” to drive.

One of the unique abilities of the Shaman is its ability to ‘crab’ steer, and traverse surfaces sideways. SB tried out this feature first with her whole team in the truck, and it seemed to go down a storm. With plenty of laughter, the team all agreed that it was truly “crazy.”

Despite prices starting at $200,000 for a basic Shaman, given its incredible abilities, its “money well spent” according to Blondie. The team clearly enjoyed their time in the truck, with Supercar Kate (Blondie’s sister) asking “shall we combine all our salaries and get one?”

On the water, the Shaman floats thanks to its giant tires acting as a buoyancy aid. They can then propel the truck by ‘driving’ in the water. Alternatively, it can be fitted with an outboard propeller unit, as demonstrated in the video.

Blondie clearly enjoyed her time behind the wheel of this behemoth. However, with only a handful in existence, it’s unlikely we’ll see a Shaman 8×8 join the channel any time soon.
